Interesting

Have you researched the work visa requirements here in the U.S.? Not knowing your codes familiarize yourself with the ICC plumbing code and the Uniform Plumbing Code.

Also, your most likely going to be hired as an apprentice. This is governed usually State by State. Canada is a little different. If certified as a licensed plumber under one of these codes, you may be bale to apply to just test for a license. If not you may not get much credit at all & need to start as an apprentice in many areas. So I would research those points also depending on what State you may be in.

Thank you for your response,


I have not looked into any plumbing code, but now as you mention it I will have look into it for each state as see how they differ one to another.

I don't know how you plan on getting a green card and coming over here but I wish you good luck with it. I'm Danish myself and have been here for 5 years now. We need more Scandinavian plumbers here

Good luck in your venture! I will say that there’s no shortage of work in the Lansing Michigan area (the capital, but small city. Every plumber I talk to is 2-3 out for service and union new construction is booming too. Only problem with Lansing is the inspectors are told to look for revenue, not do their job. My plumbing inspector will call out any trade.

But what GAN said. You’ll more than likely to have to start as an apprentice, and codes vary not only from state to state, but sometimes county to county, and sometimes city to city.

My uncles a builder in florida keeps telling me to come and work down there ( im canadian ) i dont think he knows all the hoops id have to jump through to become certified in another country. Yes winter sucks here but getting a working visa and moving down there an memorizing another code book feel like a headache. Not to mention id probably make the same money plus a chance of getting a 200k hospital bill if somthing happend.

Thank you for your input.


I don't really mind going "back" to be an apprentice, maybe there is some test you can do and get you license directly, will have to look into that.


I will also look into Michigan.

Hi Gear_Junkie,


I'm going to be honest with you, I am not very familiar with laborterms within plumbing in English.



If you mean by lining as relining old pipes with a new layer on the inside, then I would have to say none. Plumbers in Sweden don't do relining it's a special kind of company that do that here outside of plumbing.



My other guess what you mean is lining togheter threads witch is basic learning, but I think that you mean the first one.


Best Regards
